A few years ago, a prominent Food tumblogger discovered my blog and started featuring my posts on the Food page. She is the Scooter Braun to my Biebs, the Evan Rogers to my RiRi. She is Jeannie of Goddess of Scrumptiousness. I don’t think she ever knew how thankful I was for her, how grateful I am for her constant support in the early days because I have this trouble for expressing my feelings so I often come off as ignorant and discourteous.
When her recipe, Spaghetti in Garlic Gravy with Herbs and Lemon Marinated Chicken and Cherry Tomatoes came out (which pretty much broke Pinterest) came out, I knew I wanted to make it. But I wanted to wait until I had ALL the ingredients so I’ll know the way that it was intended to taste. It was a long wait; rosemary, thyme and parmesan didn’t come easy in Indonesia. Well today the wait is over - I finally got my fresh rosemary, my thyme, and a bottle of grated parmesan that I smuggled into the airplane and endured a 11+ hour flight, plus 5 hours of delay because I was afraid that I wouldn’t find it here.
Call this a random expression of thanks, but it is long overdue and I’m glad I finally got to do it. Thank you for your passion, your kindness and your talent, Jeannie.
